Census Records Notes 

For Ireland

The first Irish census to survive intact is 1901. 

The 1911 Irish census did survive and is available at the National Archives of Ireland.

Earlier Irish census records were largely destroyed by fire. There are fragments which have been transcribed by genealogists but these include only a very small amount of the original records.
